Health Conscious Peeps

A quickie:

I love the title, but it's not as exciting. Actually, you need to make sure you've eaten and are fully digested before watching the following video.

My message before you watch it... always cook and eat fresh. It's a bit harder because you have veggies to chop, and you have to cook them longer, but in the long run, your body will thank you with more energy, and better health.

Today's breakfast consisted of:

1 oven safe ramekin (well two because I am not just cooking for myself here)
 fresh bells chopped small (red, green, yell) as much or as little as you need for your ramekin.
a handful of fresh spinach leaves chopped small
6 fresh cilantro leaves chopped small (I love the smell of cilantro)
a small bit of fresh purple onion chopped small
a handfull of fresh baby portabella  mushroom chopped small
a few pinches of fresh minced garlic
1 egg per ramekin

(it's easier if you chop all of your veggies in one fell swoop and use them throughout the week)

Spread a bit of virgin olive oil (1 teaspoon about) on the bottom of the ramekin.
put all of your veggies in
crack your egg on top
put it in the oven. (I broil at 500 and watch it closely)

When the egg is white, and the yolk is still soft, your dish is ready to go! If you prefer your egg fully cooked with a nice firm yolk, leave it in a little longer.

I'm very paranoid about eggs and how cooked they are, so I go back and forth on how long I cook mine. It's totally your preference.

The key word in this whole thing is FRESH.

Now watch this video and you'll know why!

Have a great day everyone. I'll blog again this evening. I just need to get going so I'll have time to shop before my son's basketball game tonight. This means I'll be eating dinner out. I'll come home with tips for that!


  1. Wow, cool video! I try to eat as fresh as possible because I have so many food allergies but I do succumb to the crap every now and then.

  2. I have a lot of food allergies too! I'm going to email you btw, about your website if that's okay :)
